Arneidra Lloyd, MEd (she/her)
Belly Talk Host, Childbirth Educator, Doula
I have been fortunate to live out my dream of being a successful educator for the past 17 years in public education. I have worked to close opportunity and achievement gaps amongst all demographics, providing fair and equitable education and outcomes for students. I have also worked in daycare settings, and elementary and high schools. I have seen students grow from infants into mature adults. I’ve also worked to serve students with cognitive delays resulting from the absence of proper prenatal care and or sound medical advice.
During my first pregnancy, I felt lost while trying to navigate the medical system, and lonely, not knowing what to expect or what questions to ask. Nine years and three natural births later, I am ready to answer my calling of supporting other pregnant people and being a doula. After attending several births and emotionally supporting other birthing parents, I understand now more than ever, that knowledge, mental support, and individualized attention is necessary to obtain the ideal birthing experience.
As a childbirth educator and doula, I serve clients in finding their voice, advocating for the very best care, and helping folks obtain their ideal birthing experience. Having a doula to help assist and walk with you through the beautiful process of childbirth is a gift like none other. I believe that bringing life into this world is sacred and all birthing parents should feel supported and cared for while going through every step of the process. I am here to help families benefit from nurturing during this incredible time in their lives.
